What Discus?

I bought this discus but it had no name. Can anyone tell me what variety you think it is?

I also have another question: Do incomplete or branched bands reduce a discus' value?

Looks a bit like a Mandarin Passion. The bands are more commonly known as stress bars. Some will be prominent even when the fish is not stressed however. How large is that fish Nicky?

My male brown discus seems pretty happy but his stress bars never seem to disappear. The red female flashes them so I don't think, in my case, that they are due to stress. While they are feeding they are even more prominent.

Here's the update on that discus Nicky. Some call it a Rose Red, some call it a virgin red.
